Acupuncture Day!

I love acupuncture day! I can always count on super-Nathan after his treatment.  Tonight, Nathan walked a full 1/2 walk distance unassisted for the first time.  This was about 20% further than yesterday and about twice as far as about a month ago.  Walking at normal speed, 1/2 walk is about a 10-minute walk at a good clip.  Of course, it takes us about 20 minutes now, but who's counting!  Now the acupuncture vet wants to move his treatments from every 2 wks to every 3 wks.  We've done a total of 7 treatments over 10 weeks so far, along with using the chinese herbs I previously mentioned.  As the Monkees once sang "I'm a believer"! 


  1. I read about you on Pet Blog United and had to stop by to visit. What an amazing journey for both of you. Nathan is one lucky little guy to have such a caring home, but I am sure the love he gives in return is worth every moment.

  2. I just finished reading your entire journey(saw your post on PBU) and while my heart was breaking for both of you I am also amazed at the strength and courage you both have had. I am now a Nathan fan and can't wait for the next update! Praying for you both and for continued recovery.
